Pros

You are able to serve kids who need mentors and advocates. There are many opportunities to work with at risk youth.

Cons

Management is arbitrary and capricious. There is little recognition and the working conditions are poor. The non profits are run by a for profit which is a bad situation. Raises are arbitrary, salary is about half that of other teachers or adminstrators and poor leaders are often left in charge because competant ones leave. Coorporate staff are out of the loop when it comes to day to day issue on the job and job performance of specific employees (good and bad)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be aware of your employes strengths and value them.

    Pros

    Everyone is a family in this place, when there are issues they are addressed and handled. There is always a helping hand when a situation occurs. Good job security, if you're willing to put everything you have into the job/career, you are definitely noticed. Will absolutely fall in love with the kids, especially the lifeskills students, they're an absolute blast. It is a challenging job but at the same time the challenge doesn't compare to what the rewards are. Watching a student improve in academics is one of the most accomplishing feelings in the world. To show students a world they never thought in a million years they would see is also an amazing feeling, as well as making a difference in a child's life that no other teacher could do. There's always someone in the school where you can change their lives for the better. An absolute all around great program and put into place for all the right reasons.

    Cons

    The students are challenging, in my eyes that's a good thing though because the more challenging the more opportunities you have to make a difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for all you do and thank you for putting all the hard work that the kids deserve just so they have an opportunity to have a change in their lives.

    Pros

    Great experience working with the kids, benefits and pay are above average making moving up in the company a great opportunity. Menta is willing to invest the time and money to further yourself as an individual and to help the company grow.

    Cons

    No real cons, work life balance is a little tough with the drive, but that will happen anywhere that you go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing! Management makes sure to put the kids first and always looking out for employees.
